"Miss B" The Incredible Dancing Bird




Cyrus Braintree acquired the Dancing Bird Figure from the Pianistas at the turn of the 20th Century. He named it Miss "B" and featured it in Vaudeville shows.

"Miss B" The Incredible Dancing Bird reached the height of popularity in 1927, when a New York jazz band called "The Bird-dog Five", recorded a novelty hit called "Ain't Miss"B" Heaven"; for Okay Records, which sold thousands of copies. In that year alone, at least six short films were made of her dance routines, including 3:36 minutes of rare footage of her attempt at ballet, which some believe was the nail in the coffin of an already faltering career...

Tragically, Miss "B" was destroyed in a hotel fire on East 42nd St, Manhattan on Nov, 1929.


Producer Michael Frassinelli
